Obama continues to be an embarrassment:
President Obama played his fourth round of golf in five days on Thursday after breaking from his vacation to condemn the violence in Egypt.
After wrapping up his public address — in which he announced the cancelation of joint military exercises with Egypt next month — Obama departed for the Mink Meadows Golf Club in Vineyard Haven.
He didn’t even go in front of the media cameras – his statement was “audio only”. I don’t know why he bothered to read it out loud.
Cancelling the joint exercises makes sense because Egypt not a safe place these days and the Egyptian military has it’s hands full right now. Of course we’re not cancelling financial aid. If we did that we would have no influence at all.
When the whole “Arab Spring” stuff started I was very leery about it. It’s like in one of those slasher movies when somebody starts exploring the basement by themselves. You don’t know what’s gonna happen but you know it won’t end well.
The worst part is I can’t feel optimistic about things changing for the better in 2017. We really screwed the pooch this time.
